Katie Eldridge

LEAP Ambassador 2021/22

Age: 18

From: Birmingham

I am currently: A Psychology student at University of Birmingham

I am a LEAP Ambassador because: I want to experience new aspects of the Arts other than dancing and gain an insight into the behind-the-scenes of such a large, reputable company. 

What are you passionate about: Dance and travelling 

Interesting fact about me: I used to run my own baking business called Cupcakes by Kate where I sold cupcakes for all occasions. My favourite thing to bake is a biscoff cupcake with a biscoff filling!

First encounter with Birmingham Royal Ballet: Watching family friend and Birmingham Royal Ballet First Soloist, Valentin Olovyannikov, perform as King Rat in The Nutcracker in 2015.
